Jay’s Yorkshire Workshop – 18 August 2021 – 18/8/2021 – Wednesday – BBC Two

Series 1 Episode 1 of 6

Connor nominates Jack for a surprise thank you from Jay and the team. Connor had a life-threatening liver condition. He meets Jay to explain that Jack, who was a complete stranger to him, responded to a social media post asking if anyone would be willing to donate half of their liver in a bid to save Connor’s life. They became friends after the operations and then fell in love. With the two soon to set up home together, expert woodworker Saf and his team craft a stunning mid-century-inspired sideboard for Jack, who has no idea what Jay and the team have in store for him.

Sue visits the workshop to meet Jay and nominate the care home staff where her mother-in-law lives in Doncaster. The staff selflessly left their own loved ones behind and moved into the care home when COVID first hit to keep the residents safe. It worked, and no residents caught COVID. Sue wants their efforts to be recognised, so expert woodworker Ciaran designs a 13-foot-wide curved arbour, which his team build for the care home staff and residents to enjoy in their garden.

Finally, Isabelle’s team create a bespoke sewing box with exquisite marquetry for a mum who runs a support group helping families with additional needs.

About Jay’s Yorkshire Workshop

Jay Blades opens the doors to his brand new workshop in Bradford.

In each episode, members of the public nominate local heroes from across Yorkshire to receive a bespoke, handmade piece of wooden furniture to recognise the work they do for their community, often going above and beyond. Jay hears first-hand what makes each local hero special and why they are deserving of this thank you.

Jay gives the task of making the items to one of his three experts in the workshop. Ciaran, Isabelle and Saf are three of the country’s best fine furniture makers, who create stunning designs each week.

Making the items with the experts are six passionate woodworkers from the surrounding area who have all come to the workshop to learn from the experts they’re teamed with and working alongside. Each has a personal reason to be here, and the series explores their lives whilst following how they go about making each item and learning on the job.

This show is broadcast on BBC Two, also known as the British Broadcasting Corporation.
